A generous helping of poems and stories ranging from Jacobs' 'Three Little Pigs' to a very snappy modern story by Linda Allen. In between, there are some gems: Lewis Carroll's 'Pig Tale'; Hans Christian Andersen; Alison Uttley (delightful). I enjoyed the extract from Charlotte's Web and hope it will leads sevens and eights to the original. The compiler skillfully balances and contrasts ensuring that this is no rag-bag. Still, there's a nice sense of serendipity to it. Mckee's pictures are integral and funny, as always. I'll share this a lot with sixes to nines and encourage them to make their own collections.
